The Walk forMuscular Dystrophy is a fun event that the entire family can participate in, regardless of fitness level. The celebration includes activities for kids and snacks and refreshments. The Walk is fully accessible and participants can choose from a 1km or 5km route.

"The walk raises money for research for a cure as well as funds to assist local clients with equipment needs." Ethan's father Rick describes. The event is also an opportunity to raise awareness and for the community to come together and work towards a common goal.
